From the Back Cover:

The first edition of this text was developed at MIT in the late 1960s, at the same time the principles of experience-based learning were first being applied to the teaching of organization psychology. After decades of research and experience, the phenomenon of experiential learning has been accepted as an important and legitimate approach to looking at organizational behavior.

Now, more than 30 years in the making, this text has been thoroughly updated and revised to offer the latest theories, observations, and essential experiences in organizational behavior as studied from an experiential approach.

This text is focused on exercises, self-analysis techniques, and role-plays to make the insights of behavioral science meaningful and relevant to practicing managers and students. The text is organized into four parts, progressing from a focus on the individual to the group, the organization, and the organization-environment interface. No longer the passive recipient of information, this text turns students into the active creator of their own learning.
